If possible, please guide me to solve the problem.

You have to replace those characters, which are "hardcoded" in the script. Begin reading the code with the line: "#Replace / with _ in dir name => filename" I hope you will understand what's going on. Choose another character to replace "/" and if it's a smarter choice write here so we can update the script to help other people too.

If you need more help write here. I'll read this forum more often these days to help you if you need.
